Article
The presence of chemical warfare agents (CWAs) in the environment is a serious threat to human safety, but there are many problems with the currently available detection methods for CWAs. For example, gas chromatography–mass spectrometry cannot be used for in-field detection owing to the rather large size of the equipment required, while commercial...

A microfluidic film bulk acoustic wave resonator gas sensor (mFBAR) adapted specifically as an in-line detector in gas chromatography was described. This miniaturized vapor sensor was a non-destructive detector with very low dead volume (0.02 μL). It was prepared by enclosing the resonator in a microfluidic channel on a chip with dimensions of only...

Gravimetric resonators based on Micro/Nanoelectromechanical System (M/NEMS) are potential candidates in developing smaller, less expensive, and higher performance gas sensors. Metal organic frameworks (MOFs), with high surface areas, recently come into focus as advanced nano-porous sensitive materials in micro gravimetric gas sensors. The surface o...
